92.1 Phantom FM mark the end of their successful second temporary licence with a special “Unplugged Seisiún” in The Village Venue on Wexford Street on Sunday June 20th.
Featured artists on the night include Phantom FM favourites: Juno Falls, Mark Cullen (Pony Club), Lir, The Chapters, The Mighty Stef & Special Guests. Also the Phantom FM acoustic night features the world premiere of Fergal McKee (ex Whipping Boy) new band "The Miracles".
It’s only a tenner in which cant be bad, and all profits on the night go to AWARE, a charity set up in 1985 to assist that section of the population whose lives are directly affected by depression. 300,000 people in Ireland currently suffer from depression but many hide their depression andnever get help. Sadly, over 500 people take their own life each year. AWARE is trying to help.
Lir – who previously appeared on the soundtrack to Brendan Gleeson featured film ‘I Went Down’ – re-unite for a rare gig to perform at the Phantom FM Acoustic Night.
Juno Falls Expect to hear the wonderful ‘This Song Is Your Own’ and other gems from their debut album ‘Starlight Drive’.
The Miracles: Ex Whipping Boy lead singer Fergal McKee makes a very rare live appearance with his new band "The Miracles" who will be making their world debut at this event!
Mark Cullen (Pony Club) He drinks The Dandy Warhols under the table, supports The Streets and can even claim the likes of Morrissey among his fans.
The Chapters Recent visitors to the Phantom FM studios, Hot Press described their recent EP ‘The Indecision of Arthur Molloy’ as “a record of such sheer beauty, sincerity and substance……mellow wonderment, gentle guitar/cello blend, and sad-smile gorgeousness”
The Mighty Stef This ‘charming rogue of vast proportion’ will entertain you with his personality-driven numbers. A popular choice of support to psycho-garage Dubliners The Things, Stef has also undertaken support duties for The Zutons, Republic Of Loose, Fiery Furnaces and Miles Hunt of The Wonderstuff.
